28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!
3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”
4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
6 Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her.
7 In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’
8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.
3 To console those ho mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” (evidence God's plan is working!)
4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities,
the desolations of many generations.

So to be a part of the victory man must stop struggling for superiority to satisfy the voice of inferiority. They must quiet their minds, walk in courage and faith, separate from the world and take their place as a warrior of God. Otherwise they will continue to fulfill the scripture “you are little gods and all of you are children of the Most High, but you die like man and fall like princes”. Mankind, born through the Word has everything, all God's promises are theirs, yet if they are not careful, if they listen to the wrong voice they too will die without them being fulfilled in their lives.
9 That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new”? Ithasalready been in ancient timesbeforeus.
The thought of competition has been bred into all of creation through the fallen angels however. As mentioned before, even the altered animal kingdom fight for supremacy since the influence of the evil ones. Those owned by Satan cannot rest in God and are absolutely driven to succeed! As already pointed out also, the born again, like newborn babies don't compete to see who can walk first, they just grow and mature until they perfect walking. They don't care that others are perfecting the same thing, they just perfect what they do. That is the Kingdom way, harmony and order. No rush, no hurry, no pressure, they have eternity! Besides, why should they compete? Jesus conquered the powers of darkness and prevailed over the world for them! His children, in walking out His plan, doing His works, become His visible victory. They are evidence of God's plan working!
God's children are truly different. They love His knowledge and are no part of the world! You see, the same command of God stands before man today as spoken in the garden. Don't touch! Don't taste! In other words, separate! And what a job there is in front of the new generation as the command to be fruitful, multiply and subdue the earth is still God's will for His Kingdom as well. It is also time the new species remembers God blessed His children and gave them dominion or Satan will illegally continue to push on with his plans! They must obey the command to not touch nor taste so the power and authority of God can flow through them as in the beginning to enforce the Lord's victory and regain dominion over creation.
Isaiah 14:15gives us God's reply!
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit.
Revelation 20:10confirms, God's words do not come back void!
10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast(government) and the false prophet(Babylon) are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
